"Papers? More like novels" "Tests are tough" "Lectures are long"

I'm a strong student with a good GPA but I had to withdraw from my first class because of this prof. He's SUPER kind and sweet but his lectures are like watching paint dry. I couldn't keep my eyes open. I also had no idea what he was trying to teach us in this class he was so all over the place, as was the textbook.

"Clear grading criteria" "Lectures are long" "Skip class? You won't pass."

Gives you a take home final and gives you the essay exam questions before your midterm. One long paper. Lots of notes. Powerpoints are bare so take notes. Reading is so-so not every week you have a new chapter.

Soc 345 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Rough class. You have to attend every class and take solid notes, as very little is posted on line. His tangents are tough to follow, as well. But the paper formats make a good grade attainable, and "studios" are an easy mark if your group functions well. I hated the class but it was a GPA booster for sure.

SOC 345 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Super nice guy, tries his best to be helpful, but often very confusing and convoluted explanations of simple things. The first half of the class is theory, and the second half of the class is "studios," which I REALLY hated. Group work, presentations and debate on the Gateway pipelines. Brutal, makes me feel like I'm in Grade 10 again. AVOID.

Sourayan is a great prof! Overall the class was interesting and thought provoking. The paper is long but not hard like people have made it out to be. The midterm and exam were very fair as well. Overall, I would highly recommend him and this course!

I have taken Soc 370 & Soc 345 with Sourayan and hands down the best prof I have ever had! You usually spend the first half of the semester learning the concepts of the course and the second half applying them in an interactive fun context.

You can't help but like Sourayan personally, as he is a nice guy, but as a professor - yikes. His lectures were ALL OVER THE PLACE, got really behind. It was difficult to follow what he was saying, very slow, no structure. The majority of class stopped coming. Very long & unclear essay assignments. Term paper is a LOT of work - start early.

Dr. Mookerjea is a great prof. It was an interesting class, and he showed great films. The term paper isn't as bad as it sounds if you a) talk to him about it, and b) start it early. The final exam was a take home, but was rather tough to fit all he asked in under 10 pages. Over all a great class if you are interested in the subject.

Probably the best professor at the school. Super smart, clear, helpful and nice. The studios were the best and have been my favourite part about post-secondary thus far. Although some parts of the course were rather bland- he designs his classes in a way that the later half of the course is a lot more fun and where you apply your knowledge.

One of my favorite professors still after leaving with a SOC degree. He is helpful, lectures are comprehensive, tests are essay style questions (he gives you 5 in advance to study for, and then picks one for the test), and he is a fair marker. And super easy on the eyes!!

One of the nicest professors at the UofA. If you need any help he is willing to help you without any hesitation. You don't really need to read the text book, or even go to class because his notes are online. It was an easy class but its all writing so if you don't like that than it isn't for you. Great prof!

He's a really really nice guy but 369 wasn't focused at all. After the first few weeks I didn't even bother reading because lectures didn't have anything to do with it. I did minimal reading and got A-. GPA booster, if you're left minded.

Excellent, the best prof I have ever had. After getting some real world work experience with the government and 1 multinational, I was really able to relate to the info. Very high quality teaching. Outstanding, very helpful, concrete examples, very realistic. A genuine high quality professor.

One of the nicest and fairest marking professors I've had in University. As long as you do the research, you will receive a decent grade on the term paper. Always willing to help his students. Recommend him if you are interested in the subject, if not don't bother. :)

Dr. Mookerjea was a great prof! Marks papers pretty easy, provided you put in the effort to write a convincing argument! I received an A on the term paper; just pick a topic early on and research it well. Very helpful and willing to spend time with students...TA is good and fair in terms of marking. Very interesting documentaries! Reccomended!!! :)

The information is really intersting and the movies are very informative. But the term paper is very hard. This was a 200-level course but it felt like it was a much higher level. Maybe too hard for a 200-level
